about $25,000 after a federal tax credit. but, of course, i'm partial to the spark's big brother the incredible amazing chevy volt. okay, i'm a little obsessed but i'm going to show you why. let's go for a ride. okay so here we are in this fabulous volt. it is the best car i have ever owned. my big question is why doesn't everybody else own one? you have to put your seat belt on. we're in the middle of a city and if you were in a regular car, you would be hearing the engine hum. in this car you don't hear anything. it sounds like the car is off. it's so quiet! and luxurious. now some people find that disturbing. so the auto companies have now taken to offering you the option -- they're exploring putting this on a number of different electric vehicles where you can pick your sound. so if you wanted to have a sound of a revving engine with real torque, you could opt to put that on your very quiet car. why you would, i don't know. but some people like the sound of power. this car goes about 36, 37 sometimes 40 miles on a charge. it is a battery picture that says i have 35 miles -- 34 mi

doctor. >> republicans won't raise your taxes. we haven't had a republican vote for an income tax increase since 1990. >> and this was your doing. >> i helped. yeah. >> jennifer: that is grover norquist. gloating. president of americans for tax reform. of course, one of the most successful lobbying organizations in washington d.c. according to grover norquist 219 house members and 39 senators have signed americans for tax reform's no new taxes pledge. grover norquist's pledge. but now with the fiscal cliff looming, lawmakers who were once staunchly against raising revenues seem to be changing their tone a little bit. and grover norquist's influence may be fading fast. >> fewer and fewer people are signing this pledge. >> the pledge is dead. >> i'm not saying it's dead but i am saying the majority of members of congress see the fiscal cliff we want to sit down and we want to get something worked out. >> if you appropriate some of the money you achieved by eliminating deductions and loopholes to the national debt, even though that may technically violate the pledge, sign me up. that

power to commute can take a risk. you are a tax-paying citizen. you are contributing and giving back, and, you know, maybe there's a lesson there for others who are contemplating just for everybody who is watching as i mentioned i commuted almost 200 sentences, only one person of those 2 00 has recidivated, and that was some guy stealing a pig trough in a barn, and all of the rest are out there, and working, and trying -- trying to live, and it's much better than paying $35,000 a year keeping them in prison. toni bunton thank you for joining us in "the war room." up next we have seen how individuals can pick up the pieces in the face of tragedy and loss. but what about an entire city? we'll be right back. politics to current tv. >> it's like a reality show, they're just turning cameras on and we just do our thing. >>politically direct to me means no b.s., the real thing, cutting through the clutter. i'm energized to start my show everyday because it's fun, because i care about what's going on in this country, rather than some sort of tired banter it is actual water cooler talk i

carbon tax. you're right jeff orlowski. director >> i'm michael surer. tonight, republicans can't accept one fact, they lost. [ ♪ theme ♪ ] >> that pledge you signed 18 years ago, that was for that congress. i'm not going to attack japan today. the world has changed. >> i will vital the pledge, long story short for the good of the country only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >> i'm not obligated on the pledge. i was just elected. the only thing i'm honoring is the oath that i take that i've sworn in in january. >> that is the sound of cracks forming in grover norquist's facade. he's the guy who gets republicans to sign a pledge that they will never ever under any circumstances raise taxes. but with the fiscal cliff looming, there's a growing consensus that taxes may have to go up. norquist said those who reneged would pay a price. >> would you target some of them? >> we would certainly highlight who has kept their commitment and who hasn't. >> fortunately for grover, but unfortunately for those who want everyone to contribute their fair share there are plenty of repub

supporters to use #my2k to determine how tax changes would affect them. an schmidt tweeted: >> do you think it's a good idea to go out to the people as the president is negotiating with congress. >> i personally am a big proponent of anytime you're blinging people into the halls of capitol hill, this is one of the most polarized congresses we have seen. compromise has not been king of the hill for sometime now. i'm not sure it works. last year, bringing public pressure to the payroll cut extension through congress. i'm not sure it works this time, but it's an innovative way to get folks engaged. >> of course all of this negotiation around the fiscal cliff, the president actually indicated today that he might be president-electable. he says he's not necessarily looking for income tax rates as high as they were under president clinton. secretary geithner is going to meet with congressional leaders tomorrow. do you think they will demonstrating some wiggle room, as well? >> i personally don't think it's that big of a banner sign. if there was actually a movement toward a deal, i think yo

he has -- [ technical difficulties ] >> enough tax revenue, then i think he's willing, willing to deal. i suspect he is going to do something that his base isn't going to ben tirely happy with. but that's [ technical difficulties ] >> over the qualifying aids for social security or qualifications for medicaid or anything like that. i think it is probably going to be in the waste department abuse category. and not any kind of sweeping reform. [ technical difficulties ] >> let's be clear. the rule change being proposed not s not an affront to me or the republican party. it's an affront to the american [ technical difficulties ] >> so he doesn't have to be on board. but look, they are not talking about stripping the minority of the right to filibuster. they are talking about instead of saying, oh i'm going to filibuster, that you actually have to stand up and filibuster. that people would have to take the floor and read the phone book. i don't see anything wrong with that. there are a couple of proposals out there, nothing that significantly reduces the power of the filibuster but ha
